Very, very heavily medicated (Tramadol: that should give you an idea), exhausted and on the verge of falling asleep, so this will be the one and only update for now. The surgery went well but the aftermath has been very painful.
Thank you so much to everyone who sent well wishes, words of encouragement and love. It meant the world to me.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
